Total Depravity: More Judicial Misconduct

Rules? I don't care 'bout no stinkin' rules

Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas failed to report his wife’s income from a conservative think tank on financial disclosure forms for at least five years, the watchdog group Common Cause said Friday.  Between 2003 and 2007, Virginia Thomas, a longtime conservative activist, earned $686,589 from the Heritage Foundation, according to a Common Cause review of the foundation’s IRS records. Thomas failed to note the income in his Supreme Court financial disclosure forms for those years, instead checking a box labeled “none” where “spousal noninvestment income” would be disclosed.

Judicial dirtbaggery at its finest and more evidence that highly ranked government officials play by a separate rule book.  A book that, were you and I to live by, we would find ourselves in serious hot water.  But I suppose being a ‘conservative’ these days doesn’t mean ethics and morality.  It means take what you can get and who cares about anyone else.
